So they've finally cast the HBO movie of "Too Big to Fail," brazenly ignoring our star suggestions. Come on, Lyle Lovett as Tim Geithner? That was a brilliant idea! Instead, they're going with Billy Crudup. Also, Ed Asner as Warren Buffett. . . William Hurt as Hank Paulson. . . Paul Giamatti as Ben Bernanke. See the rest of the financial-crisis cast in Lisa de Moraes's column.
Meanwhile, Clint Eastwood has signed Leo di Caprio to play J. Edgar Hoover, a long-serving FBI director with a secret! However, Joaquin Phoenix will not, repeat, not play Hoover's aide and maybe-lover Clyde Tolson. Sorry.
